criminals. what obama didn't talk about what he is going to do about gang violence, what he is going to do about drug violence, the high murder rate in chicago and detroit -- none of this will any impact. >> neil: do executive actions like this hold up? when franklin roosevelt, passed the supreme court, they said you went too far. how long does it take and what is the process? we have two dozen executive actions taken today. how many and how long get undone? >> roosevelt proposed legislation and his own democratic house and his own vice president, former speaker of the house -- obama doesn't believe in legislation. i believe it's unconstitutional. the attempt to compel private citizens to report on private citizens under the guise it my save a child. we could deputize anybody on that. >> neil: maybe by blitzing this out today, he made it more difficult for guys like you to pick him apart. he may say, well, the majority nd i'm going to win.g to get >> i would say half of these absolute crap, just p.r. junk that he put together with his cabinet -- i'm ordering on you to do a report. why does
against it. the leaders that came in at the 20th century were reactions against ronald reagan. >> you talk about obama, managing a wounded empire. you are fiercely critical of but you also support him. >> i support him because the alternative was more frightening. obama has made it very clear that it is about american power. we are the "indispensable nation in the world," which is a form of american exceptional as some. he made it very clear that he is going to take troops and so forth out of afghanistan and q, but he is committing on a full spectrum dominance to the containment of china. it does not end. i think we will see him making alliances and treaties with countries around the world. he is already expanding the bush version of security. he has not gone back on any of the civil liberties laws. >> he has expanded it. we were so critical of bush for doing surveillance of people without judicial review. obama is targeting and killing people without judicial review. we are acting as judge, jury and executioner now. >> this is obama on the secret drone and more. >> it has to be a target b
about the obama girls being somehow food for discussion here, let's talk about their safety as some joke line. but then, talking about this guy saying the president reminds him of sadhamhusein. and we were oh, my god, that kid is skacared to death of this gu. he's comparing what obama did today to that. that takes a sick kind of connection to do that. >> he basically accused janet reno and bill clinton of murdering people merely to further his assault gun ban. >> explain how that would work? here's the question. wait a minute. how do you organize -- >> you don't want to follow. >> how do you organize branch davidion? to come up with the idea he justified the raids because he wanted to come out against gun control. >> he said the president wanted them dead because they liked their guns. you can't go down that path. >> the people who believe that you lost them. you lost them there. >> what about militia members after those two guys were executed? one of them was. the other in jail for life. but the bureaucrats are dead because the people, just workers for the united states government, are
. talking guns, money and butter. butter fat to be precise. president obama inviting children to his gun policy announce many earlier today. just as the nra airs ads call is the president an elitist hypocrite for sending his children to school with armed guards. jane, is the use of children in the middle of these kinds of very, very polarized political debates, is it fair? is it right? >> i don't know. it is predictable, tyler. kids are upset about what happened at sandy hook and that's natural. i think guns, pardon the pun, make it an easy target. it is hard to to tell people that there are people in the world who are not right in the mind. >> john carnie, your thoughts? >> nothing new that children have been used for political pawns. i'm not sure this is the most rational way to conduct a political debate but it happens over and over again. >> i think the use of individuals, whether they are children, maybe especially children, being used as part of the scenery in a political event and whether the o 0rdnary people gathering around the president with a fiscal cliff thing, i think it is
under the obama administration in afghanistan has not worked. now we are talking about leaving fairly soon but the taliban are still strong i believe the report? >> it was produced by the command in afghanistan it trass three or four backs. what happened since the surge is acted increase and all the measurements that were used in this report. and so great marines fought. army special forces. everything fought hard. it just didn't work. >> bill: you are a vietnam vet. >> yeah. >> bill: were you in vietnam colonel peters. >> no, i was a little too young but i wish i had been. >> bill: hunt looks a lot older than you i'm sorry to make that mistake. colonel was in vietnam. it's the same thing we had a corrupt south vietnam me regime. didn't work. didn't win the people's loyalty. that's what we are looking at in afghanistan colonel peters. the same thing. the afghani people. they are afraid of the taliban. they are saying, you know, karzai and those people, are they going to protect us? the answer is no. so that they are not really throw throwing in with the u.s. and the coalition forces.
. president obama is talking about reducing gun violence. joe biden is speaking right now. killed trying to save those hildren. >>> six members of the staff killed trying to save those children. it's been hard for the nation to comprepare hend. hard for the nation -- comprepare hend and hard for the -- comprehend and hard for the nation to fathom. time is not measured in days but is measured in minutes, in seconds since you received that news. another minute without your daughter, another minute without your sun. another minute without your wife, another minute without your mom. i want to personally thank chris and lynn mcdonald who lost their be and for again the courage of all of you to be here today. i admire, i admire the grace and the resolve that you all have showing. and i must say i've been deeply affected by your faith as well. and the president and i are going to do everything to try to match the resolve you demonstrated. no one can know for certain if this senseless act could have been prevented but we all know we have a moral obligation, a moral obligation to do everything in
will be talking in a second hear about what president obama might be proposing today but we did see new york state acting, the first state in the nation in the wake of the newtown tragedy under the leadership of andrew cuomo, the state senate two days ago, republican state senate passed 43 to 18. the state assembly followed yesterday and the governor was ready to sign it and said we got the job done. >> we saw, we learned, we responded, and we acted, and we are doing something about it. we are not victims. >> boom, boom boom. we came. we saw. we conquered. right? and the governor added, this is not some crazy wild stuff. this is just stuff everybody ought to be able to support. >> this is a gun-control bill if you will, that actually exercises common sense. the first point is: people who are mentally ill should not have access to guns. >> and evan the governor pointed out that includes ban on high-capacity, background check, criminal background check for every purchase of every gun even not just those at gun stores. right? >> uh-huh. >> will we see some of the
for watching us tonight. the culture goes worldwide that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. if you have been watching the memo i have been reporting that america is moving to the left very quickly. president obama's election has emboldened many liberals and funding taxpayer abortion, legalized narcotics and gay marriage. overseas the same thing is going on as the left is surging. in rome on sunday a group of gay activists stripped off their searches revealing the words in gay we trust. the pope was in the middle of a public prayer as the protesters tried to shout him down. >> [shouting] >> go with a message to pope to shut up his mouth and not to give his ad vices to those people who decide to legalize gay marriage. >> bill: italian police carried the protesters away but chances are nothing much will happen to them. in france the new socialist president has vowed to enact gay marriage. that has angered some french citizens including the sizeable muslim nation. so also last sunday they took to the streets saying they want traditional marriage to be upheld in france. >> whene
in 2007 when obama voted against -- >> bob: i talked about this. a bad mistake to do it now. no it's the republicans fault? it is the republicans fault. unemployment increase for 15 straight months, manufacturing up. trade up. you look around the economy and things you listed you can pick them out. economy is growing across the board. back to a recovery. a strong recovery. >> greg: do you think in a weird way this is a distraction? there is another gun violence going on. going on in chicago. they choose not to discuss. that is interesting. >> andrea: wyoming and texas taking it in their own hands. >> bob: sometimes presidents take something and move it up. hitler marming against europe. in the polling, it was below. they get it in the people's screen. that is what the presidents have to do. >> andrea: he has had four years. directly ahead, oxygen network makes announcement about the controversial reality show. all what made them change their sunshine we will tell you coming up. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] you don't have to be a golf pro to walk like one. ♪ when
't use that in talking to a reporter because the humor that was done on the barack obama campaign's tumbler and all of those things, i loved it. >> but it could be off message. you go through these intense campaign, you've got thousands of e-mails then you unplugged no internet for a week. what did youern from that experience, harper? >> i set out -- i realized i was addicted to e-mail. i think we all tra v that. i was at dinner with my wife and i was like "just a second." >> what are you talking about? i don't know what you mean! >> so i realized that we went from getting thousands of e-mails to suddenly like ten and it was a little bit -- i think there's a lot of ego in technology and so it's a little bit like i was like aren't i important? what happened? what happened? >> so you decided to opt out? >> i wanted to just put a distance between that part of my life and what was coming up next because i figured it's going to ramp up again but i wanted to have this tiny bit of time where i could just read. >> tell our viewers what was the best thing you read when you unplugged? >> i
, and republicans are already talking about impreaching president obama. well, that's what you get for being . . . well president obama. texas congressman steve stockman started team gop's call for imteachment and florida freshman trey radel signed on. >> like you mention he's putting out all of these executive orders and is overstepping his bounds. if that continues could that build up to make a case for impeachment. >> all options should be on the table. ask yourself what are you going to do when a republican gets in that you may not agree and like very much, and he is doing the same thing? >> jennifer: if the president's pursuit of an issue like gun safety that the vast majority of americans support is grounds for impeachment, imagine what kind of trouble he would get in if he actually fixed the economy or brought about world peace. alan grayson is here, and welcome back inside "the war room" and welcome back to congress. i know i'm a little late saying it, but welcome back. >> thanks i gave a speech about that scenario if the participate brought about world peace, an
is talking about. president obama signing 23 separate executive actions on gun violence today. and those actions could have a huge impact on the firearms industry. among other things, the president called for mandatory background checks for all gun sales and a ban on military assault style weapons and high-capacity magazines. which would make the weapon on the top legal and the weapon on the bottom illegal. even though they are essentially the same gun that fires the same ammunition. this topic is obviously controversial and we will explore every option of it with the money power panel. the owner of a gun range in louisville, kansas, and owner of young democrats of america. and a gun enthusiast from new jersey who uses the very type of firearms caught in the midst of this firearms debate. i will start with you, emily. a series of statistics in reference to what the president said in the press conference. conference. he said the executive orders that his proposals are designed to lower gun violence in the united states. according to the fbi, since 1994 the trajectory of gun violence has b
. obama spoke first. >> the president made it pretty clear when he talked to us, you know, "we're between you and the pitchforks, guys. and you need to just acknowledge that." >> the bankers have essentially made a decision that they're prepared to go along with what needs to be done to resolve this problem, to get the public back on the side of corporate america. >> narrator: but as the meeting progressed, to their astonishment, it became clear the president was in no mood for confrontation. >> what's interesting is that the next statements and the rest of the meeting essentially is obama skinning back as fast as he can on that pitchfork's punch. and he says right after that, "what we have, gentlemen, is a public relations disaster that's turning into a political disaster. and i'm here to help." >> i interpreted it as kind of a watershed time. banks are the catalyst to get us out of this morass that we're in. you can talk so long about the past, but at some point, you've got to look at the present and the future. and i thought that's what he was saying. >> narrator: the president had dec
talk to a larger question. nia is completely right. the obama people have continued polling, polling, polling, polling. and they feel like they have the public on their side. and their choice of words. for instance, yesterday the president talked about education. education polls really well among women. so they know what they're doing when they play the outside game. >> well said. thank you so much. nia-malika henderson, welcome back to "hardball." glenn thrush. beginning to sound like a pack of moon shiners. remember them, chasing the revenuers out of town? you're watching "hardball," the place for politics. i just served my mother-in-law your chicken noodle soup but she loved it so much... i told her it was homemade. everyone tells a little white lie now and then. but now she wants my recipe [ clears his throat ] [ softly ] she's right behind me isn't she? [ male announcer ] progresso. you gotta taste this soup.
up what our first read has put out today, talking about president obama's announcement, saying bottom line, obama is going to go as big as he can go, realizing there's little political downside, at least in the short term. chris, your reaction to that? is there really no downside to going straight for this as strongly as he can, fresh out of the gate and off the heels of the gun task force of the vice president's suggestions? >> well, obviously it's going to depend on what the president proposes but i think you've seen from the polls and i think you've seen the reaction from the country that something needs to be done. this is not something that's going to be solved with one simple measure. i think the president and his team have decided that a more comprehensive, bold approach is the smart thing to do. part that's disappointing to me is in this entire debate that kind of erupted obviously after the newtown shootings, is you've not heard anything from the republicans in terms of what they would be willing to even consider. would they consider magazines, would they consider any type of
and senior political reporter for politico and michael smerconish, a radio talk show host. let me start with you. there is an article today that said why president obama's gun plan may be doomed and said there strong indications that comprehensive legislation won't even see a vote on the house flew. you heard me. wasn't to put him on the pot, but i watched like you since new town and people said things have changed. i have yet to see and maybe you know of a few republican who is said things have changed and maybe it is time to put a man on assault weapons or some of the language ta is different than what we are hearing accusing the president of tyranny a power grab and the other accusations. >> let's separate two things. first of all, if you watch that press conference, a good solid one third was a direct appeal to the american people. he repeated himself over and over again. you heard congressman larson on the talking points and common sense. this is only going to happen if the american people want it to happen. you are going to see i think the president is prepared to use capital on t
- control measures. senator rand paul talked about this recently. he said that president obama is acting like a king. [video clip] >> i've been opposed to executive orders even with republican presidents, but one that wants to infringe on the second amendment, we will fight tooth and nail. i promise you there will be no rock left unturned as far as trying to stop them from usurping the constitution, running roughshod over congress. you will see one heck of a debate if he decides to try to do this. host: that was banned all. jerry and san pedro, california. caller: how are you? i am not in favor of's president executive action against gun ownership. -- i'm not in favor of president obama's action against gun ownership. i support what rand paul said. people should be able to defend ourselves and defend our country against tyranny. i believe the founding fathers made that a key theme when they put that theythere. -- when they put that amendment there. they believe taking away rifles will reduce crime. if we look at countries like england and australia where they have totally banned weapons,
far? >> yes, we have and i think, i think they're going to wait to see what obama does, and i've talked with other of my colleagues, what's going on and there's a general consensus that if he steps over that line, that something has to be done. you cannot-- it's not like he's abraham lincoln, we're not at civil war. >> greta: the line i understand for executive orders on gun control, is that the line? >> no, the line is when you cross from administrative executive orders which deal with his office. >> greta: okay. >> and pass legislation during executive order. >> greta: suppose he says he's going to ban assault weapons with executive order. >> you can't do that, that's against the constitution, the constitution is very clear. >> greta: what would be your first step if he did that. >> i think we outlined multiple avenues. it's defending the constitution in any ways we can legally and that process has many different avenues. we're willing to take those to defend the constitution. i think it the right thing to do. >> greta: and we, do you have any idea how many republicans are w
with the headline saying that he could slow down obama's efforts on gun control. have the two of you talked about any sort of compromise legislation? guest: we've had some good conversations in terms of the leadup to this new congress. he called to congratulate me, and he and i have had some discussions about different things that we might work together on, but we have not specifically spoken about gun issues. host: immigration reform? guest: we have not talked about immigration reform in the broader sense and my predecessor, lamar smith, had extensive discussions with regard to the legislation that the house passed at the end of the last congress in december to address a program that i've been trying to eliminate for many years called the visa lottery or visa diversity program. 55,000 green cards given away not based on family reunification or job skills that are needed in the united states but based on pure luck. that was then tied to a program to encourage people who attend u.s. universities with science, technology, engineering and mathematics backgrounds to stay in the u.s., use those skills
will talk about that when we return. >> welcome back. in the u.s., barack obama says he will present a plan this week for cutting gun violence and month after the newtown massacre. >> it is thought the plan might include a ban on assault weapons, and there could be tighter controls on high- capacity ammunition clips as well as tougher background checks. >> what of the measure, one thing is for sure -- they will be controversial. here's a look at the latest data on guns in the u.s. and how they compare with europe. >> despite recurring shooting rampages, most recently in newtown, connecticut, before that in aurora, colorado, many americans still reject gun control. they say the right to bear arms is guaranteed by the u.s. constitution. the un estimates america has 88 guns for every 100 residents. guns are involved in about 30 murders per million residents. the contrast with europe is dramatic. britain has just 6.2 tons per hundred and less than one gun murder per million. germany has about 30 firearms per 100 residents. france even more, but relatively few gun murders. in germany, the high n
. after the ban expired, that jumped from 9% to 20%. colin goddard, can you talk about the impact you think the assault weapons ban could have of president obama succeeds in his push to reinstate it? first, if he could talk about the power of the national rice -- national rifle association. there posting in the months since the newtown massacre, there's been more than 100,000 -- they have had more than one had a thousand members. >> we have also received an inundation of phone calls from people who have never spoken about this senate wanted to get involved in our work. we just met last night in d.c. with every major progressive group that works on policy and they're all coming together around this issue. we are really encouraged to see how many people are coming to us. i don't know the total number, but i'm sure it is comparable to the 100,000 nra got. if we announce we just got over $5 million for people who want to see new policies become law. we have to think about that. when the nra is speaking, they represent a gun manufacturers and the big gun business. they don't represent the
crowley, bureau chief. we talked about the executive orders there and there is real stuff there. the meat of all this is the legislation that obama is proposing and asking congress to act. you have republicans and a number of pro gun democrats including the senate majority leader harry reid who does not seem enthusiastic at the start of the debate right now. realistically, what do you think the most is that we can get out of this in terms of gun control laws? >> not that much. the orders are incremental and they will make some difference. they are not going to solve the problem as it is diagnosed. i don't see action in the congress. i wouldn't be surprised about a fig leaf measure and congress wants to show they did something that is toothless. i think that might be a realistic option. i don't think you will see very much in the way of the package the president proposed unless public opinion does seem to be moving a little bit. after the other big shootings, you don't see sentiment in favor of gun control. if the president wants to keep driving this and followed through more than i and ot
talked with president obama about this. i know he's strongly committed to real immigration reform. would like to see the dream act passed. i'd like to see a number of other things and we'll work on it. one of your fellow graduates of georgetown, senator durbin, deserves every kind of honor and praise for what he's done in the dream act. he'll be very important in this. >> good morning, senator. "the washington post" had a piece yesterday suggesting that you represented perhaps an obstacle to the passage of gun control legislation. i'm wondering -- obviously you do in a sense. but i'm wondering if sort of standard practice in congress should yield to what many perceive to be an extremely urgent situation. >> i think it is an urgent situation and that's why the first hearings held by anybody, house or senate, is going to be by me and my committee in that. i wasn't quite sure who they were writing about when i read the article, but i will strongly defend the press right to print anything they want, accurate or otherwise, but the fact is -- i'm not suggesting whether this was accurate or not
entitlements. >> that is the big question. will president obama compromise? >> i'm not sure he is going to compromise on this debt ceiling fight. it is important to talk about the broader contours of this actual debate. a year and a half ago we had an increase of 1 $2.1 trillion. and we are through that. and now we are up to $17 trillion. so, in my view to be candid. there is only one party that is remotely serious about dealing with this party. if we are talking tactics, what do you do if you are house republicans? you have leverage. you have talked about them already on this show. one of them is the debt ceiling fight. and the final one is the continuing resolution which is the stop gap thing because we haven't had a budget for four years. i agree with you. i think the president has the high ground there. he has a big weapon in his arsenal there. you have to give the president his way on that. >> if you pay the debt but you have to apportion out the money, the term for that is default. >> mark, my basic view is this is going to get done. but i'd like to move the last minute further ou
not apply to me. ahhhh! >> stephanie: he's talking about the obama administration using executive order to bypass congress so they can't get gun control measures done. >> i'm against having a king. i think having a monarch is what we fought the american revolution over. that's someone who wants to act like a king or a monarch. i've been opposed to executive orders even with republican president but one that wants to infringe on the second amendment, we'll fight tooth and nail and i promise you there will be no rock left unturned as far as trying to stop him from usurping the constitution. >> know what i mean, wink, wink, nudge, nudge dog whistle. here lassie. >> apparently -- >> stephanie: yes. does he not -- the white house knows which stuff is obviously that you can do by executive order and which stuff you can't. they keep putting this information out there. none of the stuff we're talking about has to do with taking your stupid guns. it has to do with, you know, gathering information and that kind of stuff. okay. what are you doing? what are you doing over there? let's go to my ron
it targeted districts. that's what i'm saying. >> we're not talking public people here, we're talking about a video game, a video game creator, it's not-- >> i've got it. another question for you, do you support -- obama's going to exploit children tomorrow, use them as props for a political advantage, and he's going to have all the kids around him. >> you're saying that, it's so sickening. >> sean: i'm right, it is sickening. >> it's the children who were killed, columbine and children killed at sandy hook and children around the country and saying he's he bexploiting them. >> sean: can i say maybe while the president is exploiting these kids, maybe apologize with burdening them with debt, and robbing their piggy banks blind while he has them. >> democrat like president obama are used to exploiting children. and using children to watch him sign the health care bill and using them tomorrow to push the gun legislatures-- not legislation, executive orders, and the families save their children every day through the use of firearms, but we won't see that tomorrow. >> sean: what are you shaking
talking this morning about president obama's announcing new gun control measures that will happen today and there's a new movie that explores gun ownership from a unique perspective, the transformation of someone that buys a gun for protection. here's a little bit of a short film which is called "gun." >> got a problem, bro? >> yeah. >> i have a gun! >> spencer gillis is the writer and director of the short. it's premiering on the sundance film festival on gun appreciation day. nice to have you with us. the film opens with a wife and man in bed who hears someone in their house and it starts in the middle of what must be the most terrifying thing, there's an intruder, he opens the door, he sees the intruder and someone is going through their stuff. tell me what this story's about. >> really it's about the influence of power on the human mind, you know, you have a man who buys a gun and it leads to these dark fantasies that he starts to have and it just takes him down a path that could have very serious consequences. >> what was your point? i mean, are you a gun advocate? are you an anti-
-style assault weapons and a ten-round limit for magazines. [ applause ] >> that was president obama outlining a raft of legislations, proposals, and executive actions he intends to take to curb gun violence in this country. karen, let's talk about what the president just outlined there. we know he signed several executive actions, he signed several executive actions. among them, strengthening background checks, the ability of federal agencies to share information. also, perhaps long overdue, pushing forward a nomination of todd jones to be head of the bureau of alcohol, tobacco, and firearms. there's not been a director in six years. he also outlined, not a huge surprise, we've been talking about a lot of these measures in recent days, several new things he'd like congress to take action on, including universal background checks, the assault weapons ban he is going forward with, and a ban on high-capacity magazine clips, and a crackdown on gun trafficking, which has less to do, perhaps, with newtown, and more to do with the increased gun violence that we saw in intercities across the country.

voted for refusing to raise the debt ceiling in 2006, talking about president obama. >> let me give you a history. when i came to the congress in 1977, one of the first days i was there, tip o'neill saw me, said, you look like a nice young guy, we need somebody to carry out the trash. he said carrying out the trash is passing the debt limit increase. i spent five years. this is a crazy story, doing little else than going to my colleagues in the domestemocraty to get a vote in the debt ceiling. everybody wanted to vote against it because it could be used against them in the election. everybody knew it had to pass and every time it would pass by one or two votes after i worked on it for weeks and weeks. i said, this is crazy. everybody knows you have to pass it, you already spent the money, like going in a restaurant and saying, i don't want to pay the bill. that's cracrazy. we passed something called the gephardt bill when you pass the budget, you pass the debt ceiling automatically to accommodate those budget figures. yes, you're right. this issue raises all the deficit issues. it shoul
